There is ambiguity in all papers I have read so I would like to ask about the following requirement:

Requirement: Being a Game master, I can access the GM menu by typing "menuInvoke".

Trying to do that as a regular player - is that a negative test or still positive in terms of verifying the requirement? Because some authors say negative testing means dealing with inputs unknown to specification, which would not be this case as the spec does say you need to be a Game master, implying it is not allowed for the other ones. However if you think like that, it is always implicit: range 1-1000 implies that nothing else can be entered, yet we test it as a negative test.

An example of ambiguity: Login system. Some say that providing incorrect password to receive Login error is negative test but I agree with the others - it is plain positive test as the requirement definitely specifies that only a user with valid password can login.

There is ambiguity in all papers I asked yesterday related but different question.have read so I would needlike to understandask about the following:
Requirement: Numeric only. When user enters invalid input, a message will be displayed.
Positive test verifies requirement, also when I put non-numeric values and message displays, I verified the requirement, so it is a positive test.

Is there a negative test case? I cannot think of any.:

EDIT: To make it simple, the thing the books obviously cannot agree on is:
Requirement: Being a Game master, I can access the GM menu by typing "menuInvoke".

Also I have encountered two opinionsEDIT:
1)Negative testing is not when you verify To make it simple, the negation ofthing the requirement. E.g. When A=1, set value to "RED". According to this opinion, test for A<>1books obviously cannot agree on is not negative test case. A negative test would be e.g A="FFSD":
2)Negative testing is testing all values outside of what is specified. In that case, if requirements says when A=1, do something..negative test would be A<>1.Requirement: Being a Game master, I can access the GM menu by typing "menuInvoke".

So taking thisTrying to do that as an examplea regular player (A=1, do something), what- is thethat a negative test or still positive in terms of verifying the requirement? Because some authors say negative test case?

I have researched all the books I have, including the ones on Gbooks and there are no easy examplestesting means dealing with inputs unknown to specification, some of them ambiguos or incorrect (as the one I showed in previous question)which would not be this case.
